The opera featuring the famous monk Jianzhen of China's Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) was presented in Los Angeles on June 8 and 9. Based on true history, "Voyage To The East - A Fearless Buddhist Master's Mission To Japan" told the story of monk Jianzhen, who started sailing to Japan in 742 A.D., but only succeeded in 754 A.D. after five failed attempts. Apart from spreading Buddhism, he also introduced Chinese art, medicine and craftsmanship to Japan, thus becoming a highly respected figure in both nations. (Xinhua/Li Ying)
